Partner, Global Leader, Forensics & Crisis, PwC United States
Kristin Rivera serves as PwC’s Global Forensics Leader, overseeing a practice of over 3,500 professionals operating in more than 70 countries. In addition, Kristin also leads PwC's Global Crisis Centre which helps companies and business leaders around the globe to prepare for, respond to and emerge stronger from crisis and other unexpected events.
Having been involved in more than a thousand investigations around the globe there are very few circumstances Kristin has not encountered. She brings that experience and insight to the table to guide corporate gatekeepers including executives, board members and auditors as they respond to business inflection points. She believes that when reasonable and intelligent individuals disagree, it is usually because they are operating under a different understanding of the facts. Kristin strives to eliminate these differences and bring consensus to the most contentious situations.
Her years of experience investigating fraud, misconduct and responding to crises of all types allows Kristin to help business leaders prepare for and emerge stronger from events for which they didn't or couldn't plan. She is especially passionate about helping leaders to transform their compliance organizations by designing and implementing innovative compliance solutions and fraud prevention programs.
In her work and my personal life, Kristin is passionate about studying human behavior. She seeks to understand what motivates people, how they rationalize their behavior and from this, how to create environments that allow people to operate ethically and transparently even in the most stressful situations.
